This is a decidedly different animal (pun intended) than the other Russia-centric project in this list (My Perestroika). Wild Russia takes a comprehensive look at the majestic forms of wildlife that traverse the vast expanse of the biggest wilderness area in the world. Home to three species of large bears (grizzlies, brown bears and Asiatic black bears), rare big cat species and a host of other amazing animals, the Russian wild also creates a beautiful backdrop for the action in this series.
